On my way to DC to attend the Microsoft Innovative US teacher contest. I will be meeting innovative teachers from all over the country who will be presenting their amazing ideas to peers and judges.
The winners of this contest get to travel abroad to represent the US in the International Innovative Teacher Forum. This year, the international contest will be held in South Africa and Innovative Teachers from more than 52 countries will be sharing the most innovative educational ideas on the planet.
In 2008, I was lucky enough to represent the US and travel to Hong Kong, China for a week of mind boggling exhibitions and collaborative opportunities.
This year, I don’t get to compete in this event but get to be a judge. The competition is really tough this year. I have review the entries and they are all ridonculous!!
